Merlo’s 4 Best Iced Coffee recipes

It’s hard to beat a classic iced latte in summer, but we’ve pulled together a few unique ideas that suit different brew methods and coffees.

Summer is here, which means it’s iced coffee season.

It’s hard to beat a classic iced latte, but we’ve got a few different ideas to try at home that suit different brew methods and coffees.

For all of these recipes we’ve used an 8oz glass filled 2/3 with ice and we’ve followed the stovetop, AeroPress, V60 and espresso machine brew guides. Feel free to adjust the coffee/base ratio to suit your taste.

P.S. We know orange juice and coffee sounds strange, but it’s good, we promise!

If you’re trying one of these at home, be sure to share your results via #merlocoffee on Instagram and Facebook.
